Since version, the following two issues have been fixed:

call forward

  • Skype crashed for the caller when a call was being forwarded to a phone and answered on the actual device.

Skype Access

  • Extending a Skype Access session first resulted in a “hotspot not valid” dialog, then after a few seconds the session got correctly extended, but the cost information and wifi SSID was not shown.
